[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada - Cubic Frog Apps is pleased to announce Gel Mania 2.0 for iOS, a major update to their accelerometer-based, one-touch game featured by Apple in New and Noteworthy and What's Hot. A jiggling 3D mass of colored gel falls and settles at the bottom of the screen. Players can tilt the screen to move the gel left and right, and can turn the gel red, green, blue, or yellow at any time using the four buttons at the bottom. The goal of the game is to quickly position and color the gel so it can eat as many matching colored gels as possible as they fall from above. Gel colors depend on the user's choice of one of four different themes.
Players lose a life when three gels splat onto the bottom of the screen, uneaten. Players gain a life by eating a gold star power up. There are three different power ups: the gold star adds a bonus life or score, the rainbow allows eating every color gel without changing colors and doubles the scoring, and the big mushroom makes the gel bigger so it is easier to catch the falling gels. An exploding bomb is a danger, since it cancels three lives, and if it hits the main gel it is Game Over. Finally, there are different faces on the gel that players can accumulate and redeem on the Rewards page.
There are two modes of play in addition to the previously described Classic mode. All You Can Eat! is similar to Classic mode, but with timed 60-second rounds, and no lives or bombs. Eat Big mode allows players to grow their gel in size by eating big mushrooms, until they are so big they can reach the targets running horizontally across the middle of the screen. Eat Big also includes 60-second timed rounds, bombs, and small mushrooms that shrink the gel.
